After you finish reviewing the existing RRAS deployment goals and you determine which goals are related to your deployment, you can map those goals to a specific RRAS design. For more information about RRAS predefined deployment goals, see Identifying Your Routing and Remote Access Deployment Goals.

Use the following table to determine which RRAS designs map to the RRAS deployment goals for your organization. This table refers to the primary RRAS designs as described in this guide. However, you can create a hybrid or custom RRAS design by using any combination of the RRAS deployment goals to meet the needs of your organization.
